Wafer Boat Handles With Hook Extensions
This article discloses an improved molded handle for carrying wafer boats
which permit the carrier from being upset in the event that the handle does not
latch into the carrier properly.
The handle 10 is comprised of a pair of cross members 11 and 12 connecting
dependent legs 13 and 14. The cross members 11 and 12 are resiliently flexible
so that when the upper cross member 11 is flexed downwardly toward the cross
member 12 the lower portions of the legs swing outwardly. Each of the legs 13
and 14 have projecting lugs 16 which are provided with a notch 17. These lugs
16 are positioned approximately 1/4 of the way up the respective legs. The notch
17 on each lug locks the handle in place on the carrier. The leg extensions 15
beneath the lugs aid in keeping the carrier upright in the event that one side of
the handle does not lodge properly in the carrier. This prevents spillage of the
carrier and eliminates the possibility of dropping the carrier or its contents.
